As I kept touching my hair last night, caressing it, I stopped to think about what made me
feel uncomfortable with the gesture. Top of mind: time ago, in some body language class or
book, I must have learned that the gesture translates into I-wanna-be-touched-as-a-symbol-of-affection.
Bluntly, I-wanna-be-loved. It would appear that last night I had forgotten for a brief while
that I am loved. It would appear that I was uncomfortable with my short loss of memory, as well.
The photo, found here, made me think of angles. Tilt your head or tilt the photo and it may
not seem that interesting anymore. Don't tilt any and you can see another (pretty?) Asian face,
a quest for passion, or a female-Buddha (as I do). Angles made me think that perhaps
I merely wanted to be loved... even more. So I allowed myself to keep touching my hair.
